John F. Kennedy was a president, husband, father and man. Today, we are celebrating JFK the animal lover! He owned and loved many animals: Tom Kitten the cat, Zsa Zsa the rabbit, parakeets named Bluebell and Marybelle, hamsters named Debbie and Billie, a horse named Sardar, ponies named Macaroni, Tex and Leprechan, and dogs named Shannon, Wolf, Clipper, Charlie and Pushinka.
He loved his pets so much, President Kennedy was the first to request that his dogs meet the Presidential helicopter when it arrived at the White House.
Pushinka was a gift of peace from the Soviet Premier Nikita Krushchev. Pushinka was already famous for being a descendant of Strelka, one of the first dogs sent to space, now she was living it up at the White House. Pushinka was very good friends with Welsh terrier, Charlie.
Soon, they had four pups named Butterfly, White Tip, Blackie and Streaker.
Here are the Kennedys at Hyannis Port with Irish spaniel Shannon, Welsh terrier Charlie, German shepherd Clipper and the pups of Pushinka and Charlie.
A regular at the White House was a pony, and they called him Macaroni.
We salute you, JFK, for your animal-adoring ways!
I am not so sad. This is just the way my face looks.
You know how when some people aren’t smiling or when they are concentrating really hard, they look like they are mad or sad? I am kinda like that.
I get real excited sometimes and jump up and then crouch down into play bow. I mean, you can’t tell in these pictures, but I do.
I think you might be giving me a complex, because now I am starting to feel sad.
Oh No! It’s okay, little Sir Irving Tesla Paddington Baxter (real name), Judy has a nice bone for you and Lea S. is ready to take pictures of your happy face.
Or I’ll cheep and I’ll cheep and I’ll peck my way in!

Can’t move. Must Rest.
I should probably get into bed.
I made it.

Just in case you had an insatiable craving for the sweet, sweet Shiba Inu pups. C.O. and Danielle live to serve!
Hello ladies. I am called Poco, aka Chicken Nugget. I am here to make your hearts burst with deep longing and emotion. I am looking for a wife who will love me all my days.
You see, I have been left behind by my mama – she did the best she could, but she could not stay. I have been found and nursed to health by a flock of the ladies. However, there is always room for more.
I am here, in my forever home surrounded by affection and attention from Samantha, Chelsea W. and her mom and grandma. Why don’t you stop by sometime and maybe you will say yes?
Welcome back to everybody’s favorite game show! Last week was very interesting. Of the 5,500 votes, 29% said a pygmy goat, 36% said a fawn and 35% answered correctly, a dog. Phew! That was a tricky one. Let’s see how you do this week.
Tic toc. Tic toc. BUZZZZZZZZ! Time’s up! Here’s a hint from our special guest, “I may be short in stature but I’m full of personality.” Did that help? Scroll down for the answer.
If you guessed c. a dog, congratulations, you are CORRECT! If you didn’t guess c., try again next time on, WHAT! IS! THAT? This show made possible by our sponsor, Heidi H.
Once upon a time there was a very nice puppy named Marple.
As you can see, Marple was attractive, photogenic and had a great disposition. The problem was that Marple had a metal growth on her head.
There were times that Marple wished the metal thingy wasn’t there because it made it very difficult to go underneath couches, beds, doors and the like. Those are some of the very best places on earth to a puppy. Marple never complained, though. She was a very good dog and did her best to enjoy every minute of her life.
Perhaps it was Marple’s good nature, in spite of her adversity, that caught the attention of The Cute Overload Fairy. The Cute Overload Fairy snuck up behind Marple and waved her cute and sparkly wand and just like that, the metal thingy was gone!
Marple looked around. How did this happen? She didn’t know, but being a polite pup, Marple pointed her snout in the air and said, “Thank you very much!” She felt a faint *boop* on her nose and a quiet, “You’re welcome.”
Marple was so excited, she immediately ran around testing all of the things she could get under.
Marple, Paul, Charlotte and Nat S. lived happily ever after. The End.
